was diagnosed with leukemia 11 months ago. she is 4 years old. her father brings her to this government cancer hospital in basra for chemotherapy treatment but the drugs needed to keep her along it are often in short supply and. we don't know whether she will get better i'm very afraid because i see many children who come to this hospital dying of cancer the number of chemotherapy sessions varies each month but sometimes we have to delay coming because there is no bed available. around 70 children are being treated for cancer in buses children's hospital. experts say pollution from surrounding oilfields is one of the reasons why basra has the highest rate of cancer in iraq iraq used to have some of the best hospitals and medical expertise in the middle east but decades of war conflict and political instability means those days are long gone the situation at
7:20 pm
this cancer hospital is so bad that doctors here say they have to rely on cash donations to buy up to 75 percent of the chemotherapy medicine they need every month. patients a health services are particularly bad in southern iraq basra is the largest oil producing region in the country but there's little sign of petro dollars spending at hospitals like this one. people in basra have along the complaint of neglect of what they say is corruption and financial mismanagement by the federal government in. protest to set fire to the provincial council building during demonstrations last year at least 30 people were killed during the on the rest against the lack of services doctors say they often provide the basic needs. we're facing a crisis in so many levels become provide chemotherapy fast enough it's not always
7:21 pm
available it's expensive and getting it involves a lot of bureaucratic red tape we also need more trained medical staff. the regional government says federal government leaders in baghdad must do a 7 when there hasn't been enough financial support from the federal government for many years this year we were allocated 2.8 percent of the federal budget and that's nowhere near enough and we need a better share of the revenues or things won't improve. the hospital is a mural called the tree of life showing photos of children who were treated here and survived the government in baghdad which in recent years has struggled to cope with the battle against eisel has promised to do more to help doctors say that if it doesn't then many more cancer victims like fatima will die. al-jazeera. all right let's get more on top story now and hong kong's
7:22 pm
decision to suspend an unpopular extradition law we can speak to who's an independent china listing joins us via skype from hong kong welcome to the program . has pulled back what it is going to happen to her. well of course this is a huge groundswell of opposition. to the extradition bill which allows one of those time. people in hong kong to be extradited to the mainland for trial and of course very few people trust them also on a song by and is because the one country 2 systems. seem to be deemed to be protected by constitution which is the home whole space it all but of course under the basic law which governs the relationship between a chain hong kong there are safeguards all the systems which some call with this
7:23 pm
separate law under common law and its freedoms are various of those guarantees but also there are safeguards for the juices in terms of security and all those in fact there are lots of safe thoughtful home only if you say but thought this is right i said so given that they want to carry law has said she's she said she put the bill on pause as it were and mr want to correct the communication of the bill it's not dead is it by the sounds of it will come back and what will happen then. well i don't think it will come back very quickly because the i hate this issue. the 2nd reading is because. it's in t.v. russia and that raises suspicions on the part of the hong kong people. and also there was not you know understanding the concept out in the room and then there are
7:24 pm
also worries that even with the state ballots they would not be sufficient to hold a fair against them all on the sole so it takes a long time and also the opposition political parties would have a field day and indeed taking advantage of this. upsurge all opposition against the government to get them all in the coming elections so i think that the government is treading very very carefully and there is no it's quite unlikely that it would come back but. looking over the border as it were to what degree would they have been involved in current times decision to reverse things for the time being. well as i said that this issue that we burrs the. early decision to rush it through the let it be the council where the administration have more most of the votes because most of the. government so the rushing is
7:25 pm
when you have more votes doesn't necessarily result that ability in the eyes of most of the we don't call it this as i said. about the occasion so i think that there was a. battle for the government that we backed out of the law and the trust so that the bill can say. let's at the council at a suitable warning time but i don't think that it's going to happen very soon right and in the meantime the planned protest will continue on sunday all right andrea thanks very much and thank you competition for farmland is leading to ethnic violence in some west african countries including mali and nigeria hundreds of killed every year for lonnie herdsmen and farmers fight over land and water and their magic heard as one grazing for their cattle and farmers look to protect their

7:28 pm
posture land was being usurped as a sahara desert moves farther inland arable land in nigeria's average north is shrinking. as a result much of the centuries old access routes taken by the herders has been turned into farmland their movement is usually restricted and most often results in deadly clashes with the farmers this is what remains of a kilometer wide cattle route on both sides farms over the past 30 years nigeria has seen a rapid growth in population with a corresponding increase in the demand for food so competition for land between farmers and cattle herders has intensified and led to violent confrontations over the past 3 years more than 2000 people have been killed across the country 2017 was one of the deadly as years in the farmers herders conflict with about 1000 people killed tension between the 2 ethnic groups is at the hurt of the lawlessness
